Note: + 30 mins cooling time

6h 10m


  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2kg easy carve pork shoulder roast, rind removed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup (250ml) barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup (75g) mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs buttermilk
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1/4 head cabbage (about 250g), shredded
  • 1/2 medium carrot, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced



Position rack in centre of oven and preheat to 160°C (140°C fan-forced). In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, combined paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, 1 tbs sea salt flakes and 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper. Reserve 2 tsp of the spice mixture. Coat the pork with the remaining spice mixture.


Heat a large heavy-based ovenproof saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and pork, fat-side down. Cook the pork, turning occasionally, for 8-10 mins or until caramelised all over. 


Position the pork fat-side up in the pan. Pour barbecue sauce over the pork. Cover and roast in the preheated oven for 6 hours or until the pork is fork-tender. 


Uncover and allow the pork to cool for 30 mins. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred the meat, stirring to combine with the pan juices. 


In a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar and reserved spice mixture. Season. Add the cabbage, carrot and spring onion and toss to combine. 


Serve the pork with the cabbage slaw.
